  1. When I opened to videohelp.com from a bookmark, the page was redirected to browserdown . com/ ?cch=cq&dc=22

    The page says to update Java even though Java is not installed. I am using Firefox 33.0.2. Hopefully, this was just a one time thing and no one else is getting redirected.

    Screenshot of Firefox window:

    Check so you have no new browser extension/addons with adware crap.

    See http://forums.anvisoft.com/viewtopic-45-14291-0.html (do not install the programs they recommend...even more adware....)

    It's usually some hidden adware crap that are bundled with software and it adjust links or installs extensions/addons to all browsers.

    It must be my highly inferior and ineffective Avast Free Home and MalwareBytes.

    Sorry....couldn't resist.

  9. Other websites have reported the same redirects, too, as seen from google search (flightrising.com, georgiapacking.org). There is no adware/malware on my computer, as far as I know. I usually have Flash disabled, so it isn't a Flash thing.

    I remember a few years back when people were reporting banner ads redirecting to a fake virus scan page and then offered to install XP Antivirus.

    You are trying to get on that list more than once eh.....


    Yeah I've never seen that and all I use is Avast Internet Security.
    I use MAMP very rarely on others PC's if they need a good cleaning and once in a blue moon just to check mine.
    Added Ad Block Plus to firefox a couple of months ago because some sites were getting ridiculous with their banner/page ads.
    And I do some seriously nefarious stuff with software and online

    I always have scripting disabled in FireFox and Chrome. I only enable it when I need to have it (very rare). it cuts down on a lot of this kind of crap.

    Running Linux is also a big plus, no need for stupid antivirus / addware blocking tools ect, ect....
    Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........

    Please report what page you are on and what banner you see when this happens.

    I'm using adsense and chitika for banners and I really hope they don't allow redirect banners. I have always tried to avoid annoying ads(popup,popunders,etc) but it's getting harder and harder to control.

    No redirects here... must be my lousy Malwarebytes, but I'm not a certified genius or certifiable for that matter.
    Is he gone?

  17. Seriously, I've used SpywareBlaster faithfully for years now, as I sometimes have to use IE. Sorry for the digression, since after re-reading the first post, I see the OP specified he uses Firefox, which doesn't use ActiveX controls, nor does it have a restricted zone.

    Like Noahtuck, I installed AdBlockPlus several months ago for the damn banner ads. I wonder, those who have seen this ad, do you have AdBlockPlus installed?
    Pull! Bang! Darn!
